an e-mail from Berkeley MBA: Stephanie ... Round 2 update! Oh wait no! This is not the mail I was hoping for... torture... that is what it is ;)

I feel they are falling behind and feel the need to communicate about it. Update all of us and tell us to take a deep breath. So, fair enough, I will breather! And keep hoping since there are more invites coming out soon!

Just received a interview invite! Here are my details below...

R2 Bay Area Applicant:
11/29/12: Application submitted
12/17/12: Received confirmation email (Delayed due to undergrad transcript uploaded during initial app -- Admissions requested an update)
01/23/13: Invited for an interview

Also, those of you who are worried about the status description: "You will be contacted at the decision deadline to see your final admissions decision." I wouldn't worry since I have had this in my status since mid-December.

As Stephanie said in her email today, invites are definitely still going out...Good luck to all!


CONGRATS sukol!!! I so hope I was in your shoes too .... The wait is Agonizing.

Dear *******,
Greetings once again from Berkeley! It has been several weeks since you submitted your Haas application and I am sure you’re wondering what’s going on behind the scenes. At this point, I wanted to shed some light on the application process and address a few of the common questions we’ve received:
• I have not yet received an invitation to interview. What does that mean? It means that we are still reviewing applications. The Admissions Committee values the effort you put into this process and every application is reviewed by at least two readers. We have already sent out a number of interview invitations, but we will continue to invite candidates to interview over the next month up to the notification deadline.
• What happens if I don’t get an invitation to interview? You should not be discouraged if you do not receive an interview invitation by the notification date; we typically invite around 25% of our candidates to interview. Some applicants will be offered a place on the waitlist without having been interviewed. These waitlisted candidates are welcome to schedule an interview after the notification date.
• I have an important application update I’d like to share, is that possible? Since we are already well into reviewing applications we cannot guarantee that your new information will be considered. However, you are welcome to submit it to mbaadm@haas.berkeley.edu. Someone on our team will follow-up if necessary.
• I already had my interview. What happens now? As hard as it is to do, you wait. Your interviewer will submit their evaluation and the Admissions Committee will consider it in addition to the rest of your application. All admissions decisions will be released on the notification date.
• Can I expedite a decision before the notification deadline? Unfortunately, we cannot expedite an admissions decision under any circumstances.
• If I am admitted, what happens next? First, you celebrate! As you know this is a very competitive process so you are among a select group. You should be on the lookout for follow-up emails from Admissions, Financial Aid and current students with important dates, events, and ways to continue to connect with our community.
I hope this information has been helpful. I know this can be a stressful time and we appreciate your patience while we continue to review applications. If you have any other questions, you can always reach one of us at mbaadm@haas.berkeley.edu or 510.642.1405.
Best wishes,
Stephanie

Naaa...just a formal e-mail they send out to everyone. Probably yours got to to the spam folder or something. I wouldn't be worried.

Any interview invites to Haas R2 applicants ?

I called the school on 23rd and they informed that interview invites were to go out in a day or two.

So, I was wondering if they actually went out..

I'm an international applicant and got mine at the end of last week, so don't worry.

Being an international applicant does not make an earlier invite necessary as you'll be interviewing with alumni. You access the online scheduler, select your location and you get your interviewer's name and contact info instantly, so setting up and conducting an interview can be done in a matter of days even for international applicants.

It is not February yet and people do receive interview invite until 4 to 5 days prior to the decision deadline. So you are fine. There is nothing to worry about.
